Carbon filtration could work. I'd love to hear how it goes if you try.

not really. you could probably make some kind of hoochy beer like drink from pure sugar and maltodextrin powder, though.

It really depends on what you mean by "clear" if it means to make a transparent colorless beverage IŽll say no, if you mean to make a beer that haves whatever color the style is but clear yes you can, and there is many ways of achiving this, temperature, finnings, filtration etc etc

carbon filtration or nano filtration will do it, but wont taste like beer. small amount of malt and hops, alot of sugar and use a curve yeast

Specify clear....like water as stated or like Bud light? Water no, Bud light..yes.
