brake fluid

So I recently bled my front brakes and bought some Motul RBF 600 from the shop down the street from me. I noticed that the new fluid was darker in color compared to the fluid(Motul RBF600) that was already in the reservoir. When I say darker, I don't mean a shade or two; the stuff is orange. I remember the old fluid being a very light yellow color when I last bled the brakes. Did I buy old brake fluid or does the color vary from batch to batch?

I got some blue stuff. I've seen some red stuff. This leads me to assume that the colors will vary.

Oh, guess I didn't catch the "same brand" part. I wouldn't think that there would be a noticable difference in the same house stuff.
Maybe buy better fluid.

I've seen a couple of different colors out there also. I think it is okay as long as it is the correct type, and is clear. Old fluid that has absorbed water is kind of cloudy.
