Do you have access to the original (on tap or in the bottle)?
Simplest thing possible at this point may be to start with the recipe that @Kent88 mentioned (above) and see if it results in an enjoyable beer on your system.

Northern Brewer kit recipes are generally good starting points for enjoyable clone / "taste alike" recipes.

I made a decent attempt at Spotted Cow, but added too much corn and it ended up sweeter than the real thing.

Also note the corn in the original recipe has been replaced by "low protein malt" The History of Spotted Cow
Anyone know what type of malt this would be?

If you're going to build a recipe from scratch based on the current version, target 1.050 OG, 1.012 FG, 5.1% ABV, 20 IBUs of Hallertauer
low-protein Pils malt, white wheat, and some crystal according to the article

Wyeast 2565 Kolsch is definitely the correct yeast; that much I'm sure of
