Did you add all of the LME before the boil or did you do a late addition? I found when adding all of the LME before the boil, it makes the beer much darker than it should be. Now, I typically add 1/3 of the LME before the boil and then the remainder around five minutes before the end of the boil - I take the pot off of the flame when adding. Although, I hear many people add the remainder of the LME at flameout. I've never tried this, but I'm sure it's equally as effective.
