Responding with a 4-card suit

Suppose  partner opens i of a minor suit ad you hold xxxx-Axx Kxx xxx.

Should one respond 1 S or 1 NT?

In the olden days Goren seems to have written that a biddable  4-card suit must have at least 4 HCP.

Responding 1 S on the above  hand strikes me as unvise as using Stayman with a flat hand 4-3-3-3

with a point less 4-card major. I would consider it with a 4-4-3-2 hand and 8 HCP.
