Lose energy - on the bottle (6)


I believe the answer is:


'bottle' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'lose energy on' is the wordplay.
'lose energy' becomes 'flag' (I've seen this in another clue).

'the' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for flagon that I've seen before include "Large wine vessel" , "Large container for serving drink" , "Wine jug" , "Large wine-bottle, jug" , "Large drinks container" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
