This is a discussion on Flopped set vs flush? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Do we give up on this after the flop? after the turn? or take it to river?

Your preflop raise is tiny. Make it 4bb+1 per limper, i.e. $1.25 in this case. With the size of your raise, you almost garantee that this will be a multiway pot which is absolutely not what you want to be playing with AA.
Get all in on the flop.

I have to agree with raising bigger preflop, although I'm not an expert at 25nl.

I hate when I limp or min raise with aces and that happens. I have had a few hands like that. You obviously know that your preflop raise was what got you into this mess. If you raised a decent amount preflop you could easily determine that he didn't have a flush because he wouldn't have called with anything like a QcJc. I usually push after the flop in these situations, but I have been burned for doing so. It really sucks when you finally flop a set of aces and that happens, especially when some shmuck with T3 beats you.
