Live Blues from
what is cask
ale (a.k.a. real ale)?
ale (or cask-conditioned ale) is young beer that has been placed in
small, metal, English casks called firkins. In the sealed firkin the
beer undergoes a special conditioning process whereby the yeast
produces soft, natural carbonation and elegant flavor components before
settling to the bottom of the cask. After a time, excess carbonation is
vented and a serving tap is hammered into a spout on the cask. The beer
is served without pasteurization or additions of artificial carbon
dioxide or other gas. This is soft, fresh, living beer the way it was meant to be served!
