What do the rest of you think?
There is no corn in Budweiser, that beer uses rice. Miller certainly does have a "corny" flavor. To me it almosts tastes like the leftover water from boiling a dozen ears of sweet corn.

I brew one ESB with a little corn. When it was young I could taste corn. When it was fully conditioned it just left a sweetness. I do not like sweet.

A lot

Corn is a definite must for Classic American Pilseners (Canadian too I would guess.)
Once the wind has been broken, it cannot be fixed.
