Default German Beer bottles? any good for bottling?

I have a case of non-screwtop Spaten/Franken Hefe Weizen bottles, they are GREEN, I was wondering if they are worth saying to bottle with? thanks

I've bottled with some Heineken bottles with no problems. Just don't leave them out. Keep them in a closest or a Rubbermaid or a fridge and they'll be fine.

Just pretend that the green bottles (or any blue ones) are clear and you'll be fine. If they stay out of the light, no skunking.

I have about 4 cases of the green Spaten bottles. I've used them. They work OK, but I like sticking to the 0,5 liter ones.
