I've never bought fish sauce that was clear (like water clear) .
You might go to Google Images (if your browser has that function) and see if you recognize your bottle there.
When you say clear----- do you mean like water 'clear' or a transparent clear honey color? (Sorry for the clumsy description.
If it looks like vegetable oil then I assume you mean 'transparent' clear but some color to it.
Is your fish sauce lighter in color than the lightest one shown in this image?
