Just a suggestion:

There's no law that says you can't call one of your interviewers and ask --
straightforwardly -- why you were not selected.

I would explain that I thought I was well qualified for and sincerely
interested in the job, and that I simply wanted to improve my abilities to
interview for a like position. I'd make sure that there wasn't so much as a
hint of anger or frustration in my voice, and I'd be careful to listen
patiently to whatever was said -- no interruption or argument, no matter how
badly I felt about the situation.

Then, as a postscript, if I still wondered about the age issue, I'd ask if
age (or anything else) had been a consideration. Finally, I thank them for
their time, and ask them to keep my resume on file -- just in case they'd
like to reconsider me for this (or another similar) position.

good luck,
