No there pop off but for some reason the caps don't fit. Sorry that was pretty vague.

They are a pain, and the labels don't come off that easily either.

Try Sierra Nevada. Those are the bottles that I prefer.

mine capped just as easily as my purchased bottles.. I didn't bother taking the labels off as I only used 3-4 bottles for the "early samples"

I've used them with no problems. They seemed to go on differently, but they sealed fine.

I've got a few Amstel Light bottles in my rotation. They never feel like they cap right, but I've never had one fail to carbonate. If you've already gone to the trouble to clean and peel the labels, go ahead and use them.

I guess it's hit or miss with amstel, cause I can get the labels off easy as f*** but the capping, ehhhhh not so much.
