My 2nd homebrew was a Brewer's Best amber ale. I thought it was quite good. Going to do another amber soon, thinking about the Austin Homebrew or Northern Brewer American amber kits. Will there be much difference between the two? I've never done a real comparison test on commercial amber ales and I pretty like the ones I've had (e.g., Bell's, Fat Tire)

I can't say for sure but I did a red ale Brewers Best Kit and my son did a red ale kit from Midwest Supplies and they are very different. They don't even seem related except for color.
