What is Cask Conditioned Beer? Cask Toronto defines this as: “a beer that is brewed from traditional ingredients and matured in the cask from which it is served. This means that it is fresh and unfiltered and therefore has a unique flavour.
Cask beer is naturally conditioned as a by-product of the secondary fermentation that takes place inside the cask, it is then served directly, without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide or chemical treatments of any sort. What you are tasting is a live product, full of flavour: beer in its natural state.”
