Leading US brewer Anheuser-Busch is launching a pumpkin-flavoured beer which will be sold through until mid-December. Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale is the first of four seasonal draughts the brewer is planning to introduce.

The company will launch a winter brew in January, a spring brew in April and a summer brew in July.

In addition, the brewer has introduced Michelob Pumpkin Spice Ale for the first time as part of the Michelob Specialty Sampler Collection, which will be available in stores throughout the US from early-November.
