Default ButterScotch PA? not what i wanted

Ok I need Ideas,

I made a very nice pale ale, followed BeerSmith and kegged after 2 weeks. one of the few times I followed directions. ya bad me.

now that it is carbonated and in kegs hooked up to my taps, yummy but Butterscotch is present in the aroma and on the tongue. I know why it happens, and will not repeat it.

BUT how to fix it, can I add a small amount of yeast (from a different Pale Ale i have fermenting atm) to suck it up? do i bring it back up to 65deg? how long do i let it sit?

what option do i have to fix it?

my wife really likes it the way it is, but i have to fix it.

Thanks
CR-

if you don't filter, there's probably enough yeast still in your keg to do the diacetyl rest. just shake it up, purge off most of the co2, and let it warm up for a few days.

+1 to try a diacetyl rest. If that doesn't work, take the kraeusen off a starter and pitch that.
