The difference it will make?

Oh a label will work what a wonderful idea, will it be made of paper ?

Will it be produced using machinery and electricity ?

Im sure those who want to get smashed, plastered, wasted n drunk while being underage will read that label and stop their drinking.

The warning placed on tobacco packets helps to reduce their consumption.

Kids are not going to spend time looking at beer websites - I doubt many people do at all. Of course you need purchase restrictions, but I don't think brewers really sell much beer through their own websites.

And as for age labels it will need to be country specific - a beer will need to be stamped with 21 in USA and 16 in Germany. In reality, people know the drinking age in their country.

Overall a waste of time - a superficial exercise from the industry to say "look we're doing something".
