I would use it. I've had different colored starters for no rhyme or reason.

Ken, i recall hearing years ago (I think in an interview w/ someone at Wyeast?) that sometimes the starter's color could change, depending on variances in the malt lot that the yeast manufacturer used when propagating a given sample of yeast.
This same thing has happened to me a few times in the past; never had an issue with the yeast(s) performing as expected, and the resulting beers were good.

Eta: yes, I would use it. Id make sure to build it up though.

Several years ago I tossed a smack pack in the brew area trash after a long time of watching it. Told my son and he pulled out. All puffed up like a balloon. Made a starter and it was a fine beer. I think it took 10 - 14 days to swell.

Brewing now. 2° outside.
Ouch! Hope no hoses freeze on you!

EDIT: I remembered that I picked up 4 ounces of Mandarina Bavaria so it was 1 ounce at 15, 1 ounce at 5 and then two into the 175° whirlpool where it sat for about 15 minutes. The temp dropped from 175° to 160° in that 15 minutes just sitting on the garage floor.
