Cask ale or cask-conditioned beer is the term for unfiltered and unpasturized beer which is conditioned (including secondary fermentation) and served from a cask or firkin without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. Cask ale may also be referred to as real ale, a term coined by the Campaign for Real Ale, often now extended to cover bottle-conditioned beer as well.
