Sure the British introduced the Brown Ale way back in 17th century. It was light brown and sweet, and brewed exclusively with brown malt. Brewer Chad Pieper decided that this was a good foundation, but as Americans do, the style needed to be Americanized. It needed to be roasted, and malty, and it needed to be a little more bitter than the style that was an English second cousin to the mild ale.

Beerenberger (1577) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Strong aromas of roasted malts, nuts, and coffee dominate the nose. Pours a dark cola brown with a rapidly dissapating off-white head providing moderate lacing. The taste is as flavorful as the nose was aromatic. Roasted malts, nuts, dark roasted coffee bitterness, with grain/bread notes appearing in the finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, this is an excellant and rewarding American Brown Ale. Will buy again. well done Upslope.
