They are certainly not yellow like a butter bean. They look good - nice and young and fresh. They should be very tender. Do they taste good?
Keep picking them, that way they will keep producing for longer.

Yes it's a snap bean. Probably a yellow one.
The bean will be a bit rubbery if the plant has been water or heat stressed. It's quite hot at this time of the year in SEQ and that kind of bean is better adapted to slightly cooler temperatures.
