Strictly speaking, russet is reddish-brown, but most lists of russet roses also include any beige or tan-colored rose. I've gone through several lists of russet roses and the following pictures are the russets I have in my garden.

Some are difficult to photograph. I'm not a photographer, so I can't give you a technical explanation, but it has something to do with a blue overlay on an orange rose. I guess it takes color adjustments to get the right shade. I've found the color of some to be nearly impossible to capture on film, so there are no photos of Cafe Ole, Cinco de Mayo, Cinnamon Girl, Coffee Bean, Hot Chocolate, and some others here. Maybe someone else has good pictures of them, but my camera refuses to capture them realistically.

This is Amberlight, a 1961 LeGrice floribunda with just enough beige to be included on some lists of russet roses.

Ah, now we get to the ones with "brown" in their names. These are the best, in my opinion. This is Brown Study, a 1998 Jerabek floribunda.

Brownie is a 1959 Boerner floribunda. I think it's my favorite. It goes through several stages and looks great in each. It starts out looking like this:

Butterscotch is a 1986 Warriner climber. Most of the own-root nurseries list it as JacTan to distinguish it from a 1942 hybrid tea named Butterscotch.
