Definition of cask ale (and, occasionally, lager): Unfiltered, unpasteurized beer brewed only from traditional ingredients, matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide and served at cellar temperature (about 54F), so cool but not chilled (NOT room temperature).
Cask Ale is also known as ‘Cask-Conditioned Beer’, and ‘Real Ale’. It is beer as it was invented to be, basically, before modern chilled, filtered, and force-carbonated beers took over the mainstream and deposed the original, old-school methods for the sake of convenience and increased profit (of big brewers) through standardisation.
