I've used the pale, but not the pale ale.

Seems like I have used it before but can't recall wether I cared for it or not. We are contract brewing for a local group and they want to use a basic 2 row. Thinking about going with Rahr pale ale malt now.

I wasn't impressed with the Gambrinus pale, but like I said I haven't tried the pale ale.

I've used it several times and have colleagues that use it as their go-to North American base. It's good stuff.  I haven't used Rahr that I recall so I'm not sure how it would compare. 
Thank you BEER!

Looking at the recipe they have Victory in there so I'm thinking about making a judgement call and just going with Thomas Fawcett MO.

Yeah, I'd go that route as well if it's an option.  Love the MO.

We use it as our domestic base malt. I think it has a nice more full flavor than a regular 2-row from Rahr or CMC but it is comparable to their pale offerings.
