To brown the crust must dry out first.
Steaming helps the oven spring AND retards the browning to some extent.
High sugar content breads and any w/ honey brown very quickly too.

Try painting your loaves w/ water just before you bake.
See if it doesn't slow the browning down.
What are you lubricating the pan w/?

For steaming I leave a cast iron skillet in the oven.
Just before baking throw a cup of water in it.
Be careful it will STEAM!
