Dainton Family Brewery is an independent 100% family owned operation brewing authentic hand crafted beer. The Impale Ale (yes, it’s a pale ale) showcases a delicious aroma of Kiwi hops supported by a crisp malt backbone. Brewed for hot days, umbrellas, wading pools, BBQs, drinking with friends, enemies and tiny monkeys on your shoulder. No family members were harmed (much) in the making of this beer.

Druid (101) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2015
Nice easy drinking beers. Crisp finish on the palate with lots of malt aromas that tend to overpower the hops.

maneliquor (3479) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head. Nose is very tropical with clean cut grass and citric zest. Has a sweetness to it and a mild toffee biscuit note behind it. Not much of a malt base besides some light biscuit tones while citrus and light tropical fruits dominate. Quite flavoursome for such a low abv beer. Solid stuff

Pours a clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, grass and some hops. Taste is thin but a little sweet leading to a thing watery finish. Not too impressed with this one.

Davros (2460) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours pale amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows floral and citrussy hops along with some sweet clean malt and soft biscuity notes. Smooth flavours, with more biscuity and bready malt. More floral hops too. Quite refreshing. Great moderately high carbonation.
