I rarely drink Miller Lite, but had one yesterday. I cannot figure out what ingredients the put in it to make it taste like that?

Is it a massive amount of corn? It almost does not taste like beer.

It could also be rice, and nowhere near enough hops (and I'm not a hophead)

I know someone who works at Miller's brewery and each batch is at least 50% cow urine... so that's probably why you think it's a corn flavor on account of the cows eating so much corn...

The macro lagers use quite a bit of rice in their brews to lighten the body and flavor. It started during World War 2 because of the grain rationing I think. The **** tastes like corn and nickels though which confuses me. Maybe a lot of DMS in it? Bovine urine sounds plausible too though...mysteries of the modern food industry...

Does bovine urine taste any different than Clydesdale urine?

Hey now. It's "Triple Hops Brewed (tm)". This means it is even better than just Triple Hopped. It has triple-hops in it. And it is brewed, with those triple-hops in it. See... not confusing at all to your average consumer like me.
