Is your favorite imported beer cheating?

From Todd Haefer, writing for The (Appleton, Wis.) Post-Crescent:

A dirty secret of Germany and the neighboring countries that follow its lead is that, despite current laws based on the traditional Reinheitsgebot that state only water, barley, hops and yeast can be used in a beer (some exceptions, such as for wheat), it usually only applies to beer sold in the country it's made in.

Beers made for export can contain any number of adjuncts, such as corn, which many of the breweries take full advantage of in an attempt to fool the American public into thinking they are drinking something more sophisticated than Miller or Bud when they order a foreign beer.
