Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Do you know this aloe?

Near Cartagena, Spain

The flowers are bright yellow. Could it be a type of Capitata?

maybe an Aloe capitata hybrid- the plant itself looks way too large to be Aloe capitata, and the flowers are not the right shape (though close)

Thanks for the replies. In my aloe, the flowering stem is quite branched and the flowers are clear,bright yellow. Guess it might always be a mystery!

Perhaps it is as palmbob says, an A capitata cross. At least that gives you a general idea.

Yes, I'm pretty sure he's right and it is a Capitata X.
