Baked some pumpkin ale bread but it came out pretty bitter tasting. Help?

Recently been on a bit of baking kick. Made pumpkin ale cupcakes and since I still had some ale and canned pumpkin left, I figured why not bake a nice loaf of beer bread.

I started with the usual base:

3 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar (except I replaced white sugar with brown)
Added in some pumpkin spice, a pinch of cinnamon, some banana extract and about half a cup of libby's pumpkin puree.

Then I used a bottle of pumpkin ale.

Loaf baked up just find , really beautiful color and consistency, but its a little more bitter than I expected. Not sure if it's the fault of the pumpkin puree or the cinnamon I added or using brown sugar instead of white.

Anyone have any experience with this?
