Here is one that is unusual, but very tasty!
12 gallon recipe
9# 2 row
3# munich
2# biscuit
1# crystal 40
1 # sugar
Mash at 150

3.5 oz. N.B @ 60
2.5 oz. N.B @ 20
2 oz. N.B @ 5
my O.G came out at 1.040
F.G 1.006
I came up with this when I was Low on 2 row (2.5 hour round trip to lhbs)
Really has a nice malt profile not very hoppy, a good session beer.
Good Luck in your search.

I guess I'll plug my little "La Fin Du Blond" beer.  It is probably higher ABV than you want, but even the Miller Lite crowd seems to like the finish. 

It is a lightish farmhouse style beer that has the belgian funk on the frontend with a clean finish and the 1882 brewery standard warming with a smile.

I would suggest cutting the grain down a little before omitting the Jaggery.  I think it is a key component for the clean finish.
