From Alex:
Definition of Cask Ale: Unfiltered, unpasteurized beer brewed only from traditional ingredients,
matured by secondary fermentatino in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide. Cask ale is also known as "cask-conditioned beer" or "Real Ale".
