The best-selling beer in the US ran a medieval-themed Super Bowl ad on Sunday night that mocked rivals Miller Lite and Coors Light for using the sweetener.
Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Bud Light, is looking to make amends with the National Corn Growers Association after the beer giant aired commercials with the slogan "brewed with no corn syrup" during Sunday's Super Bowl.

Sunday night's Super Bowl game wasn't a huge hit for many Americans, and neither was the Bud Light commercial for some corn farmers.
