Default Remove Green Apple Taste?

I made a lager using a healthy amount of German Lager Yeast into well-oxygenated wort (pure o2). I racked to kegs for lagering after about 2 weeks and now I taste a bit of green apple. Think I should have let the beer sit on the yeast cake for another few days but that ship has sailed. So my question is do I just lager and hope that it will mellow out or do I try to repitch some yeast and hope that it can clean it up?

Give it a while. That will probably go away.

Yup, fermented at 50F and rest of about 3 days at 58F and then transfered when there was no activity. So the consensus is to just let it lager and it will go away?

Yep, lager it out. If it doesn't go away, there is always krausening.
