Been EXTREMELY busy lately. Haven't had time to bottle, going to do so tomorrow. Anywho, the beer sat in the fermenter about 4 weeks, was done fermenting in about 7 days.

Think this will be any sort of problem??? It is a honey brown ale.

As long as it was kept dark and airlocked, it won't make any differance (except maybe a little clearer)

Not a problem at all. It should have cleared by now, so be extra careful racking to the bottling bucket.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
