No, that label isn't Photoshopped. I actually drank a beer called Lech, and before you American readers write in to point out the very obvious, the beer's resemblance to Heineken goes beyond the merely cosmetic as it tastes damned similar to the green-bottled favorite of the aged Hispanic men who quaff the stuff in front of many bodegas in New York City's five boroughs. However, unlike Heineken, Lech packs an impressive 5.2% alcohol content and actually gave me a decent buzz despite the dense and exceptional vegetable samosa I had just munched on. Man, I love England!
