~ Editing my oroginal post to say the plant was identified as: Aloe (Aloe jacksonii)

Does anyone recognize this little one? I used to know the name but the tag has long been gone and my named photo's were lost when my laptop crashed a year or so ago. For the life of me I can't remember which Aloe this is ... gotta admit, I haven't done any research yet but thought someone here might recognize it.

I don't remember where I got this plant, if I purchased it or if it came in a plant trade. I wonder if it could be A. forbesii, that name kinda rings a bell. I've bee looking at a few sites and I read somewhere (but now can't find the page) that the young buds of A. forbesii are yellow, turning to the coral color with age.
