I don't think Bud (or any of the BMC's) have used cluster since prohibition.

I've heard that they use a fairly large number of different hops mostly American noble derivatives, so they can move the percentages around depending on the crop year to come out with a consistent "house" taste. (There was a guy on the Sunday Session about a year ago who is a craft beer guy now but worked for A-B for quite awhile that talked about this.)

Cluster is appropriate for a CAP. But Bud is not a CAP.

Also, from the same half remembered unatrributable sources, I think they only go up to about 25% adjuncts.

Yeah I have heard Glacier is their primary bittering hop these days, used to Willamette.
