Ummmm.....the yeast thingy is BS. A good lager yeast pretty much will do any German beers. My best bocks have been made with WY2278 Czech Pils.
Malt, malt, malt...MALT!!!!!! THE DOMINATING VARIABLE!!!!
Hops, no. 2
Everything else can be readily controlled.
I would definitely agree for a Bohemian Pilsner, a little less for a German Pils, but not so much for a Dortmunder and a Munich Helles should really not have any hop aroma.The Dortmunders and helles I have had do have some hop aroma, but I'll agree it is nowhere near a pils. It really does differentiate them from other continental lagers though. Try a Spaten or Paulaner premium for Helles or a DAB for dortmunder. If you can get them on tap, the difference is even greater. The flavor is more pronounced. This is what I have tasted anyway. YMMV
