This beer isn't officially award winning, but it was a hit at the wedding for which I brewed it so that's award enough for me. It's midly hoppy, but slightly balanced toward malt. Very simple and refreshing. This would go great as a summer lawn mower beer.

8# Pale 2-row
.5# Biscuit malt
.5# Cara-pils

.25 oz Nugget (12.8%) @ 60 min
1 Whirlfloc tablet @ 15 min
1 oz Cascade (5.6%) @ 10 min

Repitch of US-05 slurry

I did the wet towel with fan cooling method, so the fermentation temperature is a guess, but ambient was about 70 F and I've heard that this method keeps it 5-10 F below ambient. I also added gelatin finings at bottling and it came out pretty clear, but not brilliantly so.
The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.
