Liked 8 Times on 3 Posts and are both great rating sites that offer a classification. Neither of them use BJCP classifications, but you can always tell what styles their categories correspond to.

Bubbling: Belgian Summer Bitter, Vienna Steam Beer
Conditioning:Greenwall Lambic
Kegged: Christmas Ale

The website lists commercial examples at the end of every style description. I like BeerAdvocate for looking up a specific beer, though.

Brewer's Association

The big difference at that site is they classify by what is being brewed commercially.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
