Harviestoun Broken Dial

Harviestoun Broken Dial

Famed for the great but more common Bitter and Twisted and Schiehallion, we believe Harviestoun's best beers are their darker Porters and Stouts. It's either in the pure Scottish water of the Ochi hills or something in the Scottish Malts, either way we love 'em. Their icon and mascot is a "fractious mouse" which appears on each of the labels and was apparently the inspiration for the first brew.
Style Brown and Amber Ale
Country British Beers
ABV 4.5%
Serving Temp 4 to 6 °C
Bottle Size 330ml
Toffee sweetness and roasted coffee notes are balanced by fruity hops in Broken Dial, Harviestoun's zingy amber ale. Oats and wheat give a smooth, creamy body, while Celeia, Simcoe, Liberty and Citra hops burst with pithy orange, cut grass and peach before giving way to a lingering, mouth coating bitterness. Harviestoun Broken Dial won a bronze medal at the 2016 World Beer Cup in the category Ordinary or Special Bitter, and a Bronze Medal at the World Beer Awards 2015 in the category United Kingdom - Amber Pale Ale.

  • Lovely Amber ale

    Review by Pud

    This is refreshingly bitter with a dry fruity finish and plenty of malt. (Posted on 14/08/2017)

  • Fruity tooty

    Review by Good Head

    Dark brown with a fast diminishing head. This is a great bitter with an intense malty flavour. It has a fruity aroma and is pleasantly refreshing. (Posted on 11/07/2017)

  • Great amber ale

    Review by JM95

    Nice and smooth with a great amount of maltiness. Nice as a summer drink served chilled on a hot night. (Posted on 18/06/2017)

  • For a summers day

    Review by Ninja Terrier

    A well hopped amber ale with the Simcoe and Citra hops taking the lead. A very enjoyable brew for a summers day. (Posted on 25/09/2016)

    Review by Beer Baron

    A beer probably best to use for cooking. Not overly good when chilled, interesting to read it was nicer when left to breathe. I shall buy another bottle and report back. (Posted on 07/07/2016)

  • Malty and zesty

    Review by Mark

    Served chilled this exceeded my expectations. Lots of malty and zesty flavour. (Posted on 01/06/2016)

  • Broken Dial

    Review by Ali B

    Full of hoppy fresh flavours. Enjoyed by itself at room temp but I would have preferred slightly cooler, drunk with a snack. (Posted on 15/05/2016)

  • Needs to breathe

    Review by Beer Monster

    Zero head, the nose doesn't do it justice on the first pour. Can taste the favoured "Bitter and Twisted" in the family tree. As instructed I drank mine slightly chilled - maybe better at room temp? Average. (Posted on 25/03/2016)

  • Lovely burst of Simcoe hop

    Review by SteveP

    I love beers that use the Simcoe hop so this is right up my street, Lovely hop flavour with well balanced malts. Nice level of bitterness in the finish. (Posted on 10/03/2016)

  • Hey up

    Review by Andywilks

    Good amber ale strong flavours helps make a mean steak and ale pie ! (Posted on 08/03/2016)

  • Enjoyable and decent price

    Review by S.Stanbridge

    Amber ale with distinctive malty undertones. Surprisingly fruity finish. Nice enough beer. Slightly too malty for my taste, however. (Posted on 22/02/2016)

  • Slurp

    Review by Llamaman

    A great beer this - a classic British amber ale, but using modern citrusy hop varieties for a bit of a zing. Biscuit malt, peach and grapefruit hops and a smooth finish with a hint of bitterness that draws you back in.
    Slips down very easily - really deserves a 500ml bottle. 4.5* (Posted on 22/12/2015)

  • Love it!

    Review by Andrew

    Great value. Lovely flavouroursome amber ale. Biscuity (Posted on 02/07/2015)

  • Class

    Review by stuartybarlow

    Beautiful coffee flavours topped off with grapefruit notes. Toasted malt flavour that gets more intense the further down the glass you get. (Posted on 18/02/2015)

  • Silver Fern Stout

    Review by Jack Swans

    I bought this as part of the Great British Beer mixed case. well worth it.
    BLACK! Seriously, this is blacker than the New Zealand Rugby shirt. They should sponsor it.
    The first thing that sprang to mind was 'tar', closely followed by 'coffee' - there's a ton of toasted malt character in there, too. A faint bit of fruity/floral character but really the tar/coffee aromas dominate. World class stout just like the rugby team
