This is an American pale ale at day 4. Someone please tell me if this green ring at the top is normal? Thank you!

It is the remnants of the krausen. It has hop particles in it, creating the green color. Looks great!

Very hard to ruin beer. Even under some of the worst circumstances, beer will almost always prevail!
