A Pale Ale that is reddish in color. Amber ale is a term used in Australia, France, and North America for pale ales brewed with a proportion of amber malt, and sometimes crystal malt, to produce an amber (reddish) color. In France, the term "ambrée" is used. In North America, American-variety hops are used for varying degrees of bitterness, although very few examples of Ambers are particularly hoppy.
