Could you post a screenshot of the offending result taken at View > 100%?

Go to Image > Duplicate rename the original "Downsampled - Image." (You keep your original that way)
Image > Image Size, check resample. Sets the units to pixels and the width to 1980 px.
Click OK to reduce it. 100% view is most accurate and eliminates moire in the image view.
Save it as a jpeg, Quality 12, Optimized for best lossless results.
RULES FOR DOWNSAMPLING
• When in doubt, stick with Automatic
• If sharpening, use Bicubic (smooth gradients)
• If the image is noisy, try Bicubic Smoother
• If the results look jagged, use Bilinear
Thanks for the info but I've done that and tried every combination of settings and no luck, still looks bad at reduced size
Ok, c.pfaffenbichler would know more than I would at this point.
If you expect to be able to read letters once they have been reduced to about two pixels height the problem might not be the image.

In the label’s »Dark Ale« line for example the smaller letters are about 6px high.
When you reduce the image to about 29.6% its size the letters will be reduced to about 2px height.
