Mensagem:  You are unaware of it because both (canonical) british /O/ and American /A/ in words like hot are pronounced practically in the same area within the mouth, the only difference is a degree of round one's lips that Brits do. Surely for some people the phenomenon is more striking than for others. 

The same goes for people here in Brazil who pronounce the /t/ in tia like the ch in choose and some (like me) who pronounce this /t/ like /t/ ask Brazilians and few can tell the difference.
