Cask Ale is a form a beer that is served directly from a cask without the addition of Nitrogen or CO2, the gases used in any standard draft beer system.
The absence of these gases and the addition of live yeast allows the Cask Ale to undergo a brief fermentation process within the cask, ultimately making the draught richer in flavor. Once tapped, the beer must be consumed within 48 hours because it is highly perishable.
