Default DME and aroma

I made a starter for a pilsner that I'm going to attempt and it does not smell like the other starters that I have done before. It doesn't smell like vinegar and it's not a bad smell. I'm wondering if it's normal for light extract vs. dark would actually have a different aroma>

If you used a pilsner yeast, that would explain the smell entirely.
