Cask ale is unfiltered beer that is racked into casks, krausened, and sealed. It then undergoes a final fermentation in the cask from which it is then served. The result is a beer with lower carbonation and more complex flavor and aroma. It is also often called ‘real ale’, and is best served at cellar temperature (~55°F).
