Can you taste MSG in the food you are eating?

I can't.

For me, whenever I feel undeserved amount of thirst after the meal is when I think the possibility of having had food with MSG. Some people have described various unspecific symptoms such as headaches to numbness.

Can anyone describe the taste? Supertasters?
