What is Cask Ale, you ask? Heavy Seas Brewing Company has the answer:  

In keeping with the Heavy Seas mission - to supply beer drinkers with the finest flavors and aromas we can conjure up - we concentrate especially on cask-conditioned ale. With close to six hundred casks in our keep, we believe we are the largest producer of cask ale in the United States.

Beer Alchemy:  This old and once-neglected serving method delivers fresh, live beer to the consumer: before it's filtered, carbonated, or kegged, the beer is racked, or siphoned, into a cask. Krausen - unfermented wort - is added to the unfinished beer. Then, the vessel is sealed off, and the beer matures within the cask. The process transforms the aroma, flavor, and mouthfeel of the ale inside, creating a brew at once unknown and familiar.

When cellared, the yeast in the cask settles to the bottom, resulting in a bright, clear glass of beer when served. Cask ale should be served at cellar temperature, between 50 and 55°. This opens up the beer's aroma and flavor all the more. The gentle, natural carbonation creates a creamier mouthfeel. Atmospheric oxygen, entering the cask as beer is drawn from it, subtly alters the flavor, transforming the ale with each pour.
