You tried to clone Lord Chesterfield Ale? Man, I remember when I lived in southeastern Pennsylvania in the late 1980s, I used to buy it by the case for like ten bucks. Returnable brown stubby bottles. It was cheap!
Back to the OP, I like a touch of corn sweetness in some of my ales, particularly the English bitter. I tend to avoid it in my hoppy American ales, as I like them on the crisp side.
