~ Hast (du) Maass u. Ziel ~
This is a cute and instructive verse designed by Franz Ringer on a stein supplied by Kunstgewerbehaus - C. F. Otto Müller (see: Chris Wheeler's "Stein Marks"). The first line of this Bayrisch (Bavarian) verse might also be translated: Be moderate and have a limit.
Hast (du) Maass u. Ziel
Zu viel ist zu viel.
Have a measure (Litre of beer) and a limit
Too much is too much.
