I put a brown ale in one as a test last year and surprisingly it tasted as good as, if not better, than the regular bottles of that batch! I am now keeping my eye out for more of those. It would also work nicely as a small growler just to carry to a party.
I don't remember if I actually drank and liked the beer that came in it. I just grabbed one or two empties from the beer store where I get my returnables.
