Yep, or cooked corn. I notice this smell mainly when I'm boiling DME for a starter. I wouldn't want that in my beer.

As the others said, boil w/o a lid on and account for the evaporation loss at the beginning or the end of the boil.

What Kaiser said!
Wet cardboard flavor, especially in extract/mini-mash is enhanced with the lid on..

Boiling W/O the lid,
Larger/full boils,
late extract adds,
& mini-mash really improved my beer.

All I know is, if I put the lid on, its just a matter of time before I'm cleaning up a boil over.

I don't like boil overs... they make me grumpy.
