I'll probably run and get some dry yeast just in case, but FWIW it's Wyeast 1332 Northwest Ale, starter was Light DME.

Unless it definitely tastes nasty I wouldn't worry. Starters aren't usually very good.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

My guess is that it fermented warm (which is fine). Cold crash it and decant the wort before pitching.
