I brew with a lot of Belgian Pale Malt instead of US 2-row.  We do club grain buys and while it still costs a little more I think the malt quality is better than the US malts available through North Country.  I use it in IPA's, pale ales, porters.  I've never tried a German Pale Malt.  I did buy some Golden Promise from Fawcett once but I had some strange efficiency issues with it that I never really solved.

Continental pale malt is pale malt from a European maltster like Weyermann or Franco-Belges.

As TM said, whether it is better to sub MO or American 2-row depends on what you are trying to do.

I was thinking of brewing this

since it's English I am leaning towards the MO
I just ordered a sack each of MO, and Canadian 2 row, and a grain mill.  ;D
