2 stroke ourboard oil

I have owned a four stroke for the last 12 years and having sold the RIB just got another (SR 5.4) with a 2 stroke. It is a Yamaha 85 premix at 50:1 (I think). I have bought 5 gallon can of Exol TC-W3. My question is: Can this oil be brown looking like normal engine oil? From previous years of using 2 stroke oil it was always blue. Can anyone advise?

Different brands / types are different colours.
Not a problem.
