Erdinger: Der original Weißbierknigge


When you go to www.erdinger.de men in lederhosen serenade you! Well, there's no men in lederhosen, but there is German choral music, no English and a link to a PDF with beautiful photography named "Der original Weißbierknigge" Babelfish translates this to: "The original Weissbierknigge" Fluch! (That's German for "damn")

I found an English version of the website, but it doesn't include a link to the aforementiond PDF. If you want to help me translate, look at this picture from the PDF and see if it provides any clues:

I think it might be another way of saying, "Fluch!

So, the beer:

And notice in the above photo that Miss Weißbierknigge is not shaking your pint just to get a bigger tip. She's demonstrating how to get the yeast out of the bottom of the bottle, because it makes a big difference in the taste and if you do it right, your head will look like this:
No, your head won't look like his, your beer's head, will look like that, all fluffy and white and like defyin' gravity, which is "Sehr küüüüühl!"
