why did my loaf bread burn (particularly on top) 15 minutes into baking?

This is my first time to bake bread, so please bear with me.
The recipe for the bread says it should be baked 40-45 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius; but mine browned on top after 15 minutes even though I followed the measurements and directions exactly. In one of the lessons here, it says the average loaf bakes in 30 minutes,but even before my timer reached 30 minutes , I could already smell something burning, and I was shocked to see my bread overly brown on top. Would it have helped if I had covered it with aluminum foil (but it is not in the baking directions)? Could it have been because I used an aluminum loaf tin? What should I do next time? Thanks!

Make sure your oven is not set on grill or put the loaf on a lower baking rak
