Well, I would agree with that. It is perfectly acceptable. It's actually better than the vast majority of beginner lifters, so yes, acceptable.
But it does depend how many months we're talking, 3 or 6 or 9. And if the beginner is doing Starting Strength, which is designed around rapid increases in the barbell lifts driven by weight gain. I'll bet I could get my 64-year-old father who has never lifted in his life squatting 225x5 after 6 months in the gym (probably far less than 6 months).
The larger point is that people tend to seriously underestimate what they are capable of squatting, with proper training. Plenty of guys bench more than or close to what they squat, which, given the amount of muscle mass involved in the movements, is just silly.
