Right off the bat I gotta point out that the BA Bros score of "F" is way to harsh.

Pumpkinhead is a sentimental favorite as it's been around a lot longer than most other pumkin beers. The best quality of the beer is it's drinkability. Now there are many pumpkin beers that pack more taste and higher alcohol with a more complex taste but few as drinkable and as well-balanced as PH.

If you're looking for a seasonal-pumpkin style beer that is not exploding with vanilla, all-spice, and sugar sweetness. This it the beer to try. Other wise stick to the Pumking, Weyer Imp Pumkin, Hoppin Frog Pumpkin Hollow, etc.

This rating is on a bottle but I would recommend trying on tap if able.
