Average Scores Across Beer Advocate, Untappd and RateBeer

@BeerBrewin posed an interesting question:  What's the average score across Beer Advocate, Untappd and RateBeer?  So I dug into the data a little bit, and here's what I found:

For beers where a score was retrieved from all three sites the scores were as follows:

Total beers with scores from all three sites:  3,483

SiteAverage Score
Beer Advocate86.5(4.33)

And if you account for all data, you can see it's pretty consistent:

SiteAverage ScoreTotal Number of Scores
Beer Advocate86.1(4.31)3808

*** NOTE:  The above numbers only include beers that have been entered in beernumbeer, and are not even close to including the entirety of the above site's catalogs.
