Your primary issue is that your lighting ratios are wrong... you have more light coming through the bottle from the background than you have hitting the label from the front.

The bottle is, in fact, orange but looks brown when no light is shining through it from behind. Use an HSL (HSV/HSB) tool to desaturate the orange channel. It might be ...
