Default metal bottles

Has anyone tried using the new aluminum bottles that Budweiser makes to store their beer? They are vacuum sealed 16 ounces and stored at 22 degrees. I noticed the cap has more rubber than a standard cap, but wasn't sure if they would work or not.

likely only works with a bench capper. my buddies' wing capper won't seal New Belgium bottles tight, and I tried one of the really old Guinness non-draft bottles and didn't get a seal either.
