"Beer Floaties" in your beer: What they are and what they mean.

Short story shorter: don't keep your beer around too long, and you probably won't see "beer floaties".

Thanks for posting. I haven't seen any in my beer, thankfully.

I always hold especially Belgian beers up to the light  before I buy them. Floaters are almost always a sign that the beer's best days are behind it and flavor is diminished IMO (even most aged ones).
