Default Is this suitable for lagering?

I'm going to make a Rauchbier whilst temperatures are cooler, and was wondering if a plastic pressure barrel (see the link below) would be suitable for use as a lagering vessel?

Any advice would be helpful!

it looks like its made to hold consumable liquids and is pressure rated.. can't go wrong if the price is right for you

Thanks both. I've got one lying around the house, so wanted some advice rather than getting hold of anything else!
