What kind of beer is it? A few beers I've brewed, mostly the ones with zest or some spices, have had a film on top that trapped CO2. I always thought it was oils/residuals that trapped the bubbles. All of them have turned out fine!

Well, some of the bubbles along the top of the photo look as though they have some opacity to them.

But i agree. Aerobic bacteria die a horrible death in bottles and kegs. They need oxygen to survive.

Just tell everyone it's a farmhouse ale.

Also, this could be an indication that you aren't getting a good enough seal from your bucket lid.

use your taste buds to decide in these instances. Most of my beers have some sort of film, bubbles, etc. on them. Sure, they may be the beginning of a mild infection...but they taste perfect and we know nothing can live in there that can hurt you.
