Beer ABV

Quick question. Does a beer that is sold in shops have to display the ABV on the bottle.

This would make sense then. The beer stated it was imported from germany.

If it is sold in the UK then it must show the ABV, it doesn't matter where it was imported from. Did you by it from the back of a van at a car boot sale?
