Default Blue bottles?

How do blue bottles line up on skunking resistance? I have some blue ez-cap bottles. I figured they would be similar to a brown bottle.

Nah, unfortunately they're about the same as green glass - meaning, keep them out of the sun.

I'll be keeping them in the box then. SWMBO got them on the idea that if we were going to have beer bottles all over the place they should be pretty.

So I'll be drinking beer out of pretty bottles. I better get some pretty glasses to go with them. And maybe some umbrellas to go in said pretty glasses. Man...where the heck are we going with this?

Bartender, another whisky.

I don't know just why, but if I had a bunch of blue bottles I would put something like a witbier in them.
