Default Bad beer?

My previous kegerator died back in the spring and I just recently replaced it. I had a brand new keg of beer in it when it died and it sat in the garage all summer. I opened the keg today and was going to dump it but when I cracked it open I didn't appear to have been contaminated and no odd orders. It was still carbonated. I'm wondering if it should still be good since it sat in the heat all summer.

Damn Yankee Brewery

Chill it and tap it... What's the worse that could happen. You drink some beer?
It isnt going to hurt you....
