Should Ale be served chilled?

1)Should I keep it in the refrigerator or is room temperature enough?

2)Should it be consumed in one go. Or can I finish after a few days?

    depends on how cold ur room is, a chilled ale would be better.

    best finished in one go unless you plan to use the left-overs to cook.

    1) Ale should be served at room temperature.

    2) Why would you not consume it all in one go? Why would anyone want to drink day-old beer?

    Most real ales should be served at room temperature.

    With regards to keeping ale, it would probably be best to finish it at one go. However, ale unlike beer isn't really gaseous, so it won't go "off" or stale as quickly. That said, why wouldn't you want to finish an ale at one sitting?

    Depends on the country you are in. In the US, most drink ale cold. I had great room temp ale in England and chilled ale in Germany.

    keep it chilled, not too chilled, a good ale should say on the bottle what temperature to keep it at, and what temperature to drink it at. but because the cold kills flavour, so drink it at around room temperature.
