Was the engine oil a tan milkey color?

I just changed the oil I put full synthetic 10w 30 for high mileage. So it was a light color but it did not look milky. It looked like it was little bubbles of burnt oil not a lot of them just a couple on the dip stick.The car has not jerked like that again but oil still looks hot when I check it.
