What is Cask Ale?

Cask conditioned ale or 'real ale' is brewed with only traditional ingredients and allowed to mature naturally.  The unfiltered, unpasteurized beer still contains live yeast, which undergoes a secondary fermentation in the keg.  This creates a gentle natural CO2 carbonation and allows malt and hop flavors to develop, for a richer tasting drink with more character than regular keg beer.

The typical cask is 10.8 gallons and called a 'Firkin' though cask ale can come in any size keg.
