I (finally) bottled the Pumpkin Ale yesterday, now I just have to wait for it to carbonate.  I hope to be able to open it for Thanksgiving.  In any case, I'm quite satisfied with the result.  It has a deep reddish amber color.  The flavor is very malty with undertones of the pumpkin and other spices.  I will admit that the original recipe came out a little on the hoppy side, so I doctored it going into the second fermentation.  Another gallon and a half of water, a can of the Amber extract syrup, a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice, a can of pumpkin, and 8 oz. of brown sugar later, I got the result I was after.  I'll let everyone know the verdict once I break it open next week.
