Default Gluten free cream ale

I was interested in brewing a Gluten free cream ale with corn/maize. Now, I
just want to impart the corn taste in my final product. Will a pound or two steeping in my boil give me that corny taste?

Yes, but you might want to consider getting some alpha enzyme and mashing it.

Don't forget that corn will almost fully convert, so your final gravity will likely be really low. To up the final gravity and help with the Cream Ale flavor you can use some Lactose sugar as it's not fermentable and will help to increase some head retention.
