Probably going to make a golden/light bitter next. I want some hop flavour, but fairly low and balanced nicely against the malt, rather than hoppy. Was thinking about adding a bit of amber malt, about 3%, along with 5% light crystal or similar.

Not used it before, would it work in this type of beer?

Yeah definitely I like to add a bit of amber or biscuit malt to bitters to bring out the malty flavours

Heres a brew I did based on TTs Boltmaker that uses a bit of amber in the grist, probably still the nicest bitter I have made

You can also use amber in s similar way to how crystal is commonly used by adding about 5% to a brew. 95% pale malt, 5% amber, for example. Less sweetness, more maltiness. It's a good addition to darker beers too. And I have put it in red ales where it has worked really well.
