What's the Drinking Age at McDonald's?

OK, so I pick on McDonalds a little. But one thing that's great is that they have the local authority to make their own decisions. Sometimes those decisions are just silly. The McDonald's in Tokyo has "corn potage" on the menu. I like that the McDonalds in New Delhi doesn't have any beef available.
But here is one I just love. The McDonalds in Palma, Mallorca, Spain. You can get a draft beer with your french fries. But this sign is the best. They don't serve alcohol to minors under 16.
Man! In the States, 16-year-olds can't even get into R-rated movies, but in Spain they can drink beer with their Happy Meals. They're loving it!
