Why is "the bottle of milk" rejected?

Just out of curiosity...what woud be 'a milk bottle'...presumably the adjectival form of milk before 'бутылка'? :s моложая...no idea haha

    I'd say «буты́лка для молока́» ('bottle for milk'), «буты́лка и́з-под молока́» ('bottle from milk').

    «Моло́чная буты́лка» ('milk bottle') is theoretically possible, and that's how Wikipedia calls it, but I wouldn't use this phrase.

    I poured water into the milk bottle. And it turned out a milk bottle of water.
