If you work on you beer process, AND pour properly yeast sediment is not really an issue...it's a tiny bit of beer left behind in the bottle where there is a glass of uber clear beer. There's no yeast in this beerglass of mine, what little there is is still in the bottle.
+1 on time, cold and some finings

like everyone else said filtered. But you can get beer very clear other ways . I cold crash all my beers and some I add gelatin if its not to my liking. I also leave my beers 3-4 weeks in primary then another 2-3 weeks in the keg.This is a red that was cold crashed with no other additives to clarify.

One of my favorite beers....

I JUST did it with Saflager, as my first lager. 2 weeks in primary in the high 40's/low 50's in a locker in my apartmnet's garage, upstairs for a 72 hour diacytel rest and racking to secondary, then back in the the locker (which is waay colder right now) for two weeks...I'm contemplating bottling it now.

When I raked it and took a hydro reading, I ended up pulling a pinto out, it was the tastiest "green" beer I have ever had...I nearly drank the entire carboy.

Budweiser is clear because of that "Beechwood Aging" that they advertise about. Basically they lager on a bed of beechwood chips. Beechwood carries the opposite electrical charge that yeast carries, so it makes the yeast drop out of the beer much faster than they would flocculate on their own - sort of how your house gets dustier in the winter when you have the heat on - static electricity you know.
