The beer will be fine. You might need to leave it for a bit for the carbonation to settle, but it shouldn't need more gas to carb it up as the co2 is still there (assuming you haven't opened the keg of course)

heya gents,

have just had the same problem. first keg i was sorting out lines an pressures after putting into a fridge. then put second keg into start carbonating but ran out of gas. so in the couple of days it froze both. external temp gauge thats in a water bottle says +4 so not sure what going on.
have both kegs inside defrosting. hopefully they come back to life and still taste ok.

Has this happen too, keg was resting against the back of the fridge where the cooling happens
