Corn syrup is to blame for Miller Lite's flavor fail According to Murdy, it's one ingredient: corn syrup. "Miller Lite, like Coors Lite, uses a percentage of corn syrup in their beer – although, there will be only traces left in the finished product," he explained.
Miller Light was the most popular beer in two states too: Indiana and New Jersey. Overall, Budweiser has remained king of the US, ranking in the top five of all 48 mainland states surveyed. But some microbrews cropped up across the country; a hint of what might be to come in future years.
