Comments: I’ve never seen a beer with the protein content listed on the label before.  Does beer even have protein?  Mighty Squirrel’s gimmick is that it is a beer one might enjoy after exercising, offering some nutrition with the buzz. It pours out a reddish gold with low carbonation (also low carbs) and a thing head. The smell is of fresh grains and the taste is smooth and malty, rather bready with caramel. It has a light mouthfeel.  There’s nothing heavy at all with this beer and the flavor is not bold, but I can see it having it’s place after a run or a game.
